Support Civil War Education
The story of the American Civil War offers countless encounters with the values that shaped our nation: freedom, duty, dreams, and tradition. Knowing more about the Civil War makes you a better American citizen.
Now, these principles guide the Civil War Trust’s educational programs. Our brand-new Field Trip Fund will sponsor battlefield visits for students across America. Our teacher institutes continue to provide educators with the tools and support they need to make the struggle engaging and informative in their classrooms. Our traveling trunks give students the chance to experience Civil War history on a personal level. Through these and a myriad of other initiatives, we strive to sustain the lessons learned by our ancestors and to ensure that their sacrifice was not in vain. Your contribution today will help the next generation of learners discover the heritage that is so vital to our future.
